  1. E PA/NJ/DE Spring 2018 OBS Thread

    What looked like a meaningful shower turned into a sprinkle here - 79F currently. Mowed the back lower yard but the lower half is too wet. Got part of it anyway! Nice to see the sun, the humidity is there though.

    62F here now, can feel the dewpoint creeping up. Foggy around the tree tops. Picked up another 0.3" of rain earlier today, total for this long wet stretch is 4.5" now.

    Received 0.7" of rain overnight and early this morning - 4.2" total with 10 days in a row now with some rain! 52 cool degrees currently.

    Actually dried out here enough to mow for a couple of hours, which was needed! Had a tenth yesterday and again last night so total of 3.5" here in the last 9 days straight with some rain. Nice evening out there now :-).

    .1" yesterday and .9" overnight brings the total here to 3.3" since last Thursday night. 8 days straight with some rain. Wonder if we'll double those totals in the next couple of days?

    They also like dead leaves and rotting wood for the larval stage....and I probably shouldn't publicize this, but one dry May a few years ago we watered the edge of the woods, lol.

    Just started here too, lol. Of course they go to bed a little earlier. I imagine a wave of birdsong rolling around the planet with the sunrise.

    .4" of rain last night, brings the total here to 2.3" since last Thursday evening. With the rain today that makes 7 days in a row with some rain here.

    Good weather for mushrooms. Will be nice to see the sun next Monday or so.

    Line is laying down more E-W as forecast, getting into some reds here but it's mainly moderate rain with mostly ctc lightning. 71F. Could pick up a bit of rain here with some training possible.

    Lol, can't see you from here (that's where I like to be too until lightning gets to about 400 yards away - that's my cue. That distance goes up a little the older you get).

    Heads up for Berks - tornado warning!

    Yeah, I've done some research too; the first year we were here (6 years ago) there were more lightning bugs than I've ever seen, and they were mainly up higher off the ground, up around the top 1/3 of the trees. Looked like hundreds of Christmas tree lights, amazing. So the next year we were all ready and there was no big show . Then the year after a nice turnout again, but at lower altitudes, which was also an awesome look. So we thought okay, maybe it's an every other year kind of deal. But in actuality not so much. Now we just take it as it comes, kind of like hoping for a snowy winter but you never know. We actually planted a row of bushes along one side in the back to block the light from our neighbor's light post that is on all night, lol. It will take a few more years for the bushes to get high enough, but we try :-). Light pollution is not good for the population since it gets in the way of mating (which is what the flashing is about). Good stuff!

    For the last 3 years there's been a single lightning bug that shows up about 3 weeks early, usually the first week of May. This year he showed up about last Wednesday, so a little later, and this time he has a pal, lol. Obviously not the same one, but it seems to run in the family. Probably scouting the area .

    Had a few minutes of light rain here - that's 5 nights in a row with some rain!
